Somber vigil for 'Macho' Camacho in Puerto Rico
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Family and friends of former boxing champion Hector 'Macho' Camacho kept a somber vigil Friday at the hospital in Puerto Rico where he remains on life support.
Doctors in San Juan have said Camacho is clinically brain dead from a shooting earlier this week in his hometown of Bayamon. But relatives and friends told The Associated Press they are still wrestling with whether to remove him from life support.
"It is a very difficult decision, a very delicate decision," said former pro boxer Victor "Luvi" Callejas, a longtime friend, in a phone interview. "The last thing we lose is hope and faith. If there is still hope and faith, why not wait a little more?"
